Octoberose asked,

How do you live out spiritual freedom in the midst of tyranny



 I really do want to know what you see and feel in regards to the turmoil that we are all experiencing and really want to know how it is you feel we can navigate these times spiritually.

My personal thoughts are this, the topic of covid is incredibly polarizing and seems to bring out the worst in people, no matter what they believe concerning it. The world is tearing itself apart on this issue, like it has on many other issues since the world began.

I think the right thing to do (not that I know how to do it) is to be separate from the world and to be the light on the hill. Turmoil, in all its forms, whether external, or especially internal, is what shapes our character - "as seemed good to the potter to make it".

Both sides of taking the COVID vaccine are for the most part dug in very deep and they are mostly on one side or the other politically. So it could turn into a political debate without mentioning which side you're on and this almost always gets ugly.

There's been a forum for bible-truths.com for the last 18 years or so and I've seen just about everything. People have started a new forum to avoid rules and it has always turned out bad. One of them even survived for as long as three or four months before packing it in.

There are very few discussions on the Facebook page. I'll look in a few times a year but it's usually pretty quite with a few people posting excerpts from Ray's material.

Back to COVID. It's up to you to research and decide for yourself. Don't look for articles that agree with your current view. See what the other side is saying. We're talking about life or death here so take it seriously.

And there is nothing wrong with using PM's to talk to others about this topic. That's why it's here. PM's are not public.

I was wondering the same thing lareli.   There are things like Rumble and Odysee out there without the same censorship we’re seeing on social media.  I saw that You Tube took down a post that included Prayer to combat Covid.  What?  I guess there’s a fine line between keeping the conversation where the moderators want it to be and what the needs of the members are.   I surely don’t want to lose any of Ray’s content and appreciate the blood sweat and tears that others have put into it- and I always want to know how the members  are doing, but  I’m struggling to find my way here.

Octoberose asked,

How do you live out spiritual freedom in the midst of tyranny

I think this is an excellent question and is at the heart of most of the Covid threads. If we’re not allowed to discuss ideas with one another in regards to this question publicly then I would really like to continue privately somehow. Private messages are ok but if anyone were to start something like a Facebook group for bible truths members only than I would really like to be on that.

I know there’s a bible truths Facebook group already but Facebook would not be ideal for obvious reasons. Does anyone know of any social media platform like a ‘duckduckgo’ search engine version of Facebook? Some platform where data is not collected or censored?

You guys we are all very privileged to know the things you do about God and I trust your perspective more than anyone who is deceived about God. I really do want to know what you see and feel in regards to the turmoil that we are all experiencing and really want to know how it is you feel we can navigate these times spiritually. I’d even really like to hear all the crazy conspiracy theories.

I’m not tech savvy but if anyone is and wants to start a separate group so that we can keep bible truths true to its purpose of discussing Rays teachings and not politics than please reach out.

We need to stay away from the COVID topic from now on. We're not going to change anyone's opinion at this point.

Is this a new rule

YES and here is the Rule that applies:

https://bible-truths.com/forums/index.php/topic,3.0.html

The moderators will generally try to remove posts before banning a member, don’t take it personally. If you see your posts being removed then perhaps you should review what you are writing to make sure is goes along with the forum rules.  If you are asked to let a subject drop, or a particular subject is off limits then please abide by what the moderators ask.

Here is a small something to consider while we await our redemption with patience and faith.
How great a scientist is our loving God.

The Weight of the Wind
“For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven; To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.” (Job 28:24-25)

It was only discovered by scientists in modern times that the air actually has weight. This passage in Job, however, written 35 or more centuries ago, indicated that the two great terrestrial fluids of air and water forming Earth’s atmosphere and hydrosphere are both “weighed” by God’s careful “measure” to provide the right worldwide balance of forces for life on Earth.

Another remarkable “weighing” act of God is noted in Job 37:16: “Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?” Clouds are composed of liquid drops of water, not water vapor, and water is heavier than air, so how are they “balanced” in the sky? “For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: Which the clouds do drop and distill upon man abundantly” (Job 36:27-28).

Meteorologists know that the weight of the small water droplets in the clouds is “balanced” by the “weight of the winds”—air rushing upward in response to temperature changes. Eventually, however, the droplets coalesce to form larger drops that overcome these updrafts and fall as rain. “By watering he wearieth the thick cloud” (Job 37:11). The coalescence is probably triggered electrically in the clouds themselves, “when he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder” (Job 28:26).

Although these verses are not couched in the jargon of modern science, they are thoroughly scientific and up to date. “Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?” (Job 26:14). HMM

Romans 8: 35, 37

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it (Proverbs 4:23,

It has been my experience that by focusing on all that is true and worthy in the sight of our Lord is where true peace and contentment is found. You will never find those by constantly focusing on what is going on in this world. Jesus told us he leaves with us his peace and not as the world offers it. All the world can  offer any of us is fear. Fear is one of the most powerful weapons Satan uses to seperate us from this place of peace.  Seperating many,  even from the love of God by using God's own words to deceive. The hell doctrin is a good example.

Philippians 4

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me--put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Everything going on in this  world is as God has planned,  and nothing we do in opposition will change it.  Either we trust in him in all things or we don't, but trying to fight against him will bring nothing but hopelessness and despair. Our redemption is near and we should be rejoicing in that.
